The figures show a tilt table on which elongated tube profiles are arranged, with the profiles containing components 10 to be mounted by a robot. The table 1 is pivotally supported at one end 3 (Fig. 1). A hydraulic device 4 is arranged for moving an axis 6 provided with wheels 5 into two alternative positions a and b. A follower arm 7 is pivotally supported at one end by axis 6. The other end of the follower arm is pivotally mounted to the table 1, whereby at the movement of the axis 6 from position a to position b the table 1 will be tilted upwards from its initial position to its tilted position. As shown in Fig. 2, receiving means 8 with recesses 9 are arranged for each of the tube profiles 2.
